BioFuelNet Canada brings biofuels education to Canadian high schools

February 21, 2016 |

In Quebec, BioFuelNet Canada has partnered with Talk Energy Week to participate as panelists at schools in eight Canadian cities, where they will be discussing sustainable advanced biofuels with over 1800 grade 11 and 12 students. Each participating classroom will be sent a series of educational infographics, illustrating various types of biofuels, where they come from and how they are made.

“As our use of fossil fuels is one of the major contributors to climate change, rethinking the energy sector will be a crucial undertaking for the next generation of workers – many of which are currently in high school and beginning to learn about alternative energy solutions,” says Dr. Donald L. Smith, CEO & Scientific Director of BioFuelNet.

Additionally, BioFuelNet has released a 3-D animated short film for the occasion, which demonstrates how Canadian scientists and students are working collaboratively through BioFuelNet to solve environmental issues we are facing as a society.
